Maxillofacial surgery

Maxillofacial surgery is a medical and surgical specialization which is often identified as the actual bridge between the physician and the dentist.

The scope of this specialization is mainly concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of all the pathologies related to:

  • oral cavity
  • maxilla
  • jaw
  • face
  • TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint)

Maxillofacial surgery specialists must have a lot of experience in many medical fields, such as:

  • general medicine
  • dentistry
  • plastic surgery
  • otolaryngology
  • neurosurgery
